Sump Pump Basics

A sump pump is a pump used to remove water that has accumulated in a water-collecting sump basin, commonly found in the basements of homes. The water may enter via the perimeter drains of a basement waterproofing system, funneling into the basin or because of rain or natural ground water, if the basement is below the water table level.

Sump pumps are used where basement flooding happens regularly and to solve dampness where the water table is above the foundation of a home. Sump pumps send water away from a house to any place where it is no longer problematic, such as a municipal storm drain or a dry well. 

Why do Sump Pumps fail?

  • Sump Pump is having to constantly run
  • You have an overworked Sump Pump
  • Sump Pump loses power
  • Clogged Sump Pump
  • Clogged discharge lines

  • It was installed incorrectly 
  • Lack of Maintenance
